Why the Thunder Will Cover (-2.5)
The Thunder is riding a season-high 4-game losing streak right now, and it should come to an end tonight. The Timberwolves are already missing Karl-Anthony Towns, but they might also be without D’Angelo Russell and Rudy Gobert, depending upon their availability come game time. Regardless, OKC needs a win, and I think they get it tonight and cover the small spread in the process.
Why the Game Will Hit the Over (233.5)
This is a lot of points, but as is typical, OKC should score a lot and give up a lot, and Minnesota isn’t necessarily great on either side of the ball, but in the end, I’m seeing this one being a high-scoring affair.
